Justin Bieber has responded to a Twitter user who claims to be the thief who stole his laptop and camera, and is threatening to release personal footage and photographs stored on it at midday today.
Bieber told Twitter user @gexwy that his fans would stand by him no matter what.
The self-proclaimed thief, who has amassed 53,432 followers on the social networking site, tweeted to the Canadian popstar: “good job with the password protected @justinbieber. weak (sic)” adding “and I’m looking at the rest now. all of it”.
Bieber responded yesterday: “@gexwy no matter what you have and what you post tomorrow i know my fans wont leave me. screw it. #toostrong”
The other user replied: “u have no idea what i have and when u see tomorrow u will feel different” and signed off with: “TOMORROW PUNK! @justinbieber”.
The laptop and camera were stolen from Bieber’s tour manager’s office on Tuesday night in Tacoma, Washington, while the star was on stage. After the theft he angrily tweeted: “sucks when u take personal footage and people dont respect your privacy. yesterday during the show me and my tour manager josh had some stuff stolen. really sucks. people should respect other’s property i had a lot of personal footage on that computer and camera and that is what bothers me the most. #lame #norespect (sic)”.
Yesterday an explicit photo thought to be of the popstar emerged online, but was widely reported to be fake.
